Carihi prevails in longest running high school tournament

The Carihi Senior Girls Soccer team enjoyed a superb Plate win in the 20th Annual Investors Group Invitational hosted at Carihi and the Sportsplex last week.

The tournament is the longest standing High School Invitational in B.C. The number of teams traveling from the Mainland showed how highly it is regarded. The opening round of games between 16 teams determines whether they move to the top side of the tournament and the Cup or the lower side, the Plate.


Carihi was matched up against Stelly’s ranked #3 in Victoria AAA world. It proved to be an excellent game of soccer which saw two evenly matched teams battle hard. Stelly’s managed to get the winner in the last minute of regulation time.The result saw Carihi head into the Plate and their next game was against St. Partick’s. The Vancouver team put up a spirited fight but the Tyees prevailed to secure a 1-0 win with the lone goal coming from Emma Skalik. The next morning the Tyees faced St. Thomas Aquinas out of Vancouver. The game was secured 2-0 and the scene was set for a repeat of the 2015 Plate final between Carihi and Mark Isfeld. The Final, like the previous three games, saw Carihi make full use of its 16 player roster. Goals from Abbie Simms, Emily Dreger, Skalik and Tanisha Maltilpi ensured an emphatic 4-0 victory. Strong performances were also seen by the attack minded players Macayla Gray, Svea Gottschalk, Jolyn Barley and Madison Ashcroft. At the close of the tournament Charlie Borrie received the Team MVP. The players and staff acknowledge the continued sponsorship of Ken Garraway. It was 1996 when Garraway first stepped up to sponsor. This week the Tyees head off to the prestigious 24 team UVIC tournament. On April 19 they begin their first league playday of the season. Carihi will also host the BC High School AA Soccer Championship on June 2-4.
